Fall semester students focus on courses such as Introduction to Global Strategy, Intercultural Business Skills, Entrepreneurship, and International Marketing.

You'll study alongside international students, adding another dimension to your understanding of global business.
Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, Grenoble is often referred to as the intellectual and economic capital of the Alps. Over the years, the city has developed into a major center in the fields of physics, computer science, and nanotechnology; more than 200 multinational corporations have made chosen Grenoble as the base of their European operations. You can take French language classes at University of Grenoble - Alps's Centre Universitare d'Etudes Françaises or study business at the renowned Grenoble Ecole de Management, which is ranked among the world's top 50 business schools.
Experience all that Grenoble has to offer through organized CEA activities, or use your spare time to explore the miles of hiking trails, lakes, and ski slopes that make the Alps famous. In the winter, race down Olympic slopes or snowboard the Alpine trails. During the rest of the year, enjoy windsurfing, kayaking, or hang gliding. Four national parks, as well as endless student sports clubs, make the French Alps an ideal environment for students who love the outdoors.
